Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner: 'We want to take a hairdresser on tour'
The frontman joked that they'd be getting a personal hairdresser 'on the way to our private jet'
Speaking to the Illinoise Entertainer, Turner was discussing his Elvis style quiff, and joked that when the band start touring in a private jet he'd also like to take a hairdresser on tour, to maintain his hairstyle.
He commented: "...hopefully, we'll get to the point – on the way to our private jet – where we tour with our own hairdresser. That's the next rung on the ladder. So what we really need is someone who can look after the wardrobe and cut hair – maybe I can take this opportunity to advertise for that!"
